A fascinating list. I usta drive by the old Scovil plant on a daily basis, never had any idea what exactly they manufactured.

FYI re #13: While warning may be the intent, I can say with some degree of certainty that for many men it has exactly the opposite effect. Pardon any perceived crudity; I'm just sayin

My DD is just starting to wear lipstick, and won't leave home without applying it. It's adorable.

Not liking the 5% in stomach, thing, but as a former waitress I can attest to the coffee mug/glass part (AND to the fact that it does NOT come off without scrubbing!).
